Description

National Best Seller 

A must-listen book. Naomi Klein pairs a decade of her powerful writing on our acute environmental decline with new material on the staggeringly high stakes of what we choose to do next and inspiringly offers here a politically viable, just, sustainable path forward.

For more than 20 years, Naomi Klein has been the foremost chronicler of the economic war waged on both people and planet - and the champion of a sweeping environmental agenda with stability and justice at its center. In lucid dispatches from the front lines - from the ghostly Great Barrier Reef, to the annual smoke-choked skies of the Pacific Northwest, to post-hurricane Puerto Rico, to a Vatican attempting an unprecedented "ecological conversion" - she has penned surging, indispensable lectures and essays for a wide public, with prescient, clarifying information about the future that awaits us and our children if we stick our heads in the sand. They show Klein at her most thoughtful, tracing the evolution of the climate crisis as the key issue of our time, not only as an immediate political challenge but as a spiritual and imaginative one, too. 

Delving into topics ranging from the clash between ecological time and our culture of "perpetual now," to the soaring history of humans' ability to change rapidly in the face of grave threat, to rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of "climate barbarism", this is a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink. Above all, she underscores how we can still rise to the existential challenge of the crisis if we are willing to transform our systems that are producing it, making clear how the battle for a greener world is indistinguishable from the fight for our lives.  

On Fire is a critical book: It captures the burning urgency of this moment, the fiery energy of a rising movement demanding change now, and lays out an inspiring vision for a sustainable future.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Ce que les critiques en disent

“Naomi Klein’s work has always moved and guided me. She is the great chronicler of our age of climate emergency, an inspirer of generations.” (Greta Thunberg) 

“Naomi Klein is a precious gift: Every time I read her words, my heart leaps from sadness and anger to action. She takes us deep, down to the roots of what is wrong - and then up, up to a height from which we can see what must be done. Everything we love is at stake now: these writings are our best and brightest hope.” (Emma Thompson)

“Masterful.... What separates Klein from many other advocates for a Green New Deal is her balanced combination of idealism and politics-based realism.... Another important addition to the literature on the most essential issue of our day.” (Kirkus Reviews)

One of most important reads (listens) for our time

Very comprehensive and listenable book. A must read for all leaders in our country. This book gives a thorough overview of what needs to change and how to change it.

This book is all about Naomi

I am struggling to finish this. I thought it would be a good analysis of what a green new deal looks like. In fact it's more of a self-referential, American-style timeline of Klein's accomplishments. It reads like a boring CV. I'm disappointed and would like a refund.
